The Dallas Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd talked about the impact that Jaden Hardy, who scored 11 points off the bench, provided against the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night:

“He gave us some energy, [some] life. Being able to put him in play, he hasn’t played. I thought he responded positively [for] a rookie. He helped us. Going down the stretch with the injuries that we’ve had, we might have to look to play him a little bit more.”
